CAI-CLAC Virtual Legislative Week at the Capitol

Each year, California Community Association (CAI) members visit Sacramento to educate legislators on current issues affecting California’s 55,000 community associations. With COVID-19 and in person events continuing to be a concern, your CAI-California Legislative Action Committee (CLAC) has an exciting four (4) day virtual CAI-CLAC Legislative Week at the Capitol planned for all CAI California members. 

Attendees can join virtual briefing sessions with CAI-CLACs lobbyist, Louie Brown, to learn what new changes are on the horizon. Legislative visits will be held individually with all eight CAI California Chapters and their local legislators.

These virtual visits are more important now than ever – and can be done in the comfort of your home or office. Come help us educate legislators, seek support for specific bills, and connect with your industry peers.

We’re looking forward to growing the event through this new virtual capability and strengthening our common legislative efforts for California community associations. Registration is complimentary! Please join us and save your ‘seat’ today. 

Thank You for Attending! 

“While we will miss coming together in person, we can still come together to make a difference. Now is the time to get involved. We hope to see you there!”
– Jeff Beaumont, Esq., CCAL, CAI-CLAC Chair
